This ought to get under M$FT's skin considering the size of WalMart, My experience with Wine is limited and it did run a few Windoze apps but not very well, what i would rather see is new computers at WalMart's stores with absolutely no OS pre-installed, and a display rack with several of the major Linux distros on it all categorized by ease of use with a summary so customers can decide what they want, like as an example on the shelf labeled "user friendly" would have Mandrake, Redhat, SuSE, and another shelf labeled "for experienced Linux users" distros like Debian, Gentoo, Slackware. and for customers buying a new PC they should be able to get a free distro to choose from, sounds reasonable to me...
